We are experienced rainy season travellers so the possibility of rain does not bother us but guess we got a bit blasé about it when we booked Khao Lak for 13 night end of August beginning of Sept. Looking at posts here it seems like a lot of restaurants will be closed, particularly those on the beach. I know there will be restaurants in town that will be open so we have options outside of our hotel if we take a cab We are staying at the Apsara which I know is a bit isolated but can anyone tell me whether there are any restaurants in the vicinity that will be open, ideally beach front but happy to eat anywhere there is good Thai food and have no problems eating where the locals do?
Also, I know our options for snorkelling are limited but can anyone suggest a trip we could do where this would be an option and recommendations/prices for who to book through.
Finally, any suggestions for any other trips that are worth it, something a bit of the normal tourist trail?
Just over 4 weeks to go and I can't wait. It might rain but it will be warm rain and rainy holiday days still eat dry work days :-) :-)
